I started this football cake by cooking two white chocolate sponge cakes in pudding tins. I found that they needed about 40mins in the oven, then to finish 5 minutes in the microwave or a steamer.
I took one of the cakes and placed it right way up onto the board. I then spread a layer of melted white chocolate on the top (not on the whole cake). I then took the 2nd cake and turned it upside down and placed on top of the first cake. Using pre rolled icing I covered both the cakes.
To make it look like a football I used a black icing pen to draw the lines. For the top of the football cake I decided to make it look like a football pitch so used a green icing pen to create this.
You could also add on little football players, the age of the person or their football team.
